Solving the crime
"Fox and Felix Fine: First Case 7" by Bill Schott


Fox: ...... average young man
Felix:..... Fox's look-alike cousin
Lois:....... friend of Fox
Kitty........ victim
Trent.........bad guy

Previously: Fox and Felix discovered that Kitty had returned home. As a result, Sanders refused to pay them. The boys then revealed that they had apprehended the "kidnappers" and they were at Lois's apartment. 
The scene opens in Lois's apartment. Fox, Felix, Lois, Sanders, and Kitty enter from a doorway on the left. On the right, fastened to dining room chairs with tape, are Trent and Kay.

Forgive the mess; it's the maid's life off. 

Kitty: This is charming.

Felix: Smells like a gym locker.

Sanders: Closer to a stable.

Fox: The two people are over there. 

Kitty: Oh my God! Trent!

Fox: So, you know this joker?

Felix: Can we open a window? 

Kitty: Trent is my step-brother.

Sanders: My third wife's second husband's ex-wife's step-son, as a matter of fact. 

Felix: You might note that the woman looks like you.

Fox: She is identical.

Felix: Of course, if you remove the duct tape from her mouth she is actually prettier than you. 

Sanders: I think Kay looks better with the tape on.

Fox: Isn't she your daughter?

Felix: A father's love melts your heart; don't it?

Fox: Sounds like Kay is not the fair-haired child.

Sanders: She's a leech.

Felix: She threw a knife at me.

Kitty: Kay is a hitman.

Felix: I think I'm in love.

Sanders: You two would probably be a match.

Fox: Okay, okay. Now let's get to the truth here.

Lois: It does smell in here. I think it's those two.

Felix: They were a bit gamey. I had to hold my breath while I taped them to their chairs.

Lois: I'll have to scrub tape glue off of my dining room chairs. 

Felix: We also broke the first chair we tried to tie them to.  

Fox: Kitty?  The truth?

Lois: You know, I have a twin sister too.

Felix: We should try a double date.

Sanders: For pity's sake, can we get this over with? I'll pay your fee

Felix: Doubled. No -- tripled.

Sanders: Fine, tripled. Then you can release these two, and forget where I live.

Kitty: (
speaking to Felix) Who would you double date with Mr. Fine?

Felix: Well, uh, how about you and me, and, uh, Lois. 

Lois: Not on a bet, Felix.

Fox: The truth, Scarson. Now or I call the police.

(mumbling under a tape gag while straining at his bonds) 

Kay:  (screaming wildly under her tape gag)

Fox: I suppose we can remove their gags and find out the truth.

Felix: So, Kitty. Looks like it's you and me.
